I'm here to debunk myths about ketamine and reveal its healing potential within couples' therapy. This episode offers a peek into what it's really like to work with me in a couples’ session, guiding you through the full journey's arc – from preparation to integration. It's more than just the dose; it's a holistic experience.

Dr. Cat's personal experience with ketamine


The role of ketamine in nurturing closeness among couples and its capacity to heighten empathy


A look into a psychedelic assisted therapy ketamine session designed for couples


The significance of preparation, integration, and rituals that lend coherence to the transformative voyage


The arc of the session - offering a comprehensive transformation


Defining your “why” and setting intentions as a compass to guide your journey


The importance of vetting facilitators to ensure their energy aligns with your intentions


Testing for fentanyl contamination in powdered substances


Choosing the right setting:  private ketamine assisted therapy, group therapy, and ketamine clinics for a tailored experience


The lasting changes ketamine can bring when guided by a therapist.


Dr. Cat's upcoming couples and femme-focused ketamine retreats in 2024


How generational trauma shapes our capacity to embrace love and profound intimacy


discernment skills to distinguish between healthy and toxic relationships, fostering emotional well-being


Stigmas surrounding ketamine, recognizing its potential to foster intimacy and redefine the scope of therapy – embracing ceremony, celebration, and sensuality.
